Is it a Mustang show? If so, where exactly is it? In So Cal I gather but where? I'm in northern Cal right now..

It's in the Knott's Berry Farm theme park parking lot....

Buena Park....near Anaheim (Disneyland....)

We're meeting the night before the show at a local restaraunt...

I believe it is open to all Ford models...

Yeah - what Pat said.... A very big show. I think it includes all Ford-powered vehicles - not just Mustangs.

Boy - it is tough to beat that guy to a response! lol

1600 Fords powered cars (Must not forget the AC Cobras, Sunbeam Tigers, Panteras, blah-blah-blah). I even saw a 351 HO GT Australian Falcon complete with right hand drive.

They usually celebrate the anniversary of one of the car lines. In '99 it was the 40th Anniversary of the Galaxie. in '58 it was the 40th Anniv. of the Edsel. I have no idea what 2001 will be. I guess Knotts/Ford will not mention anything in 2008...

Good info..

Actually, the REAL partys go on the day and evening before as many of us arrive Friday night and Saturday morning. there are quite a few people at the show site on Saturday till around 1 or 2 stuffing the 1600 goody bags with all the various crap er ah "goodies". After that, things start to "cook" with various partys, cruises and impromptu "car shows" at the various motels (super 8 being one of the biggest). Actually, the show itself the next day is a drawdown for me. Lots of really great cars and even greater people to go with the cars. There is no competition as far as judging classes, and we even have celebrities show up (Jay Leno is there every year for example). For myself, the Knotts show kinda sets the pace for the remainder of the car show season....

At this point I have made reservations for 30-35 people, in the Cantina, under the name Vintage Mustang Forum at Don Jose's for 7PM Saturday evening. I did not go for the fixed price banquet menu, and at this time (Monday PM) we are all on our own dollar-wise. Pick your table-mates carefully as the management has requested and will probably demand to run as few tabs as possible. Anybody who has ever worked in a restaurant understands what its like to get hit with a "separate checks" request with a large group. See You There!!!

Pat - Knollwood (or knowlwood or whatever...) sounds good. We're not flying out until Monday either.

Bob - Teebone suggested that we take the entire food tab, divide it by the number of diners, and have everyone pay an equal amount. You would be on your own for drinks.

That certainly would be OK with me, but I'm not sure everyone would go for that.

We could also do it by table and let each table decide how to handle it. Either way would be fine... the chance to hang out with you guys is worth whatever it might cost! *G*

I guess no-one told you that the show is FULL and no further applications are being taken. Of course as a spectator is okay but its too late to show your car, inside the park at least. Do the cruise and park is still cool though.
